Hi Chris -

Think about a large aircraft wings during an abrubt maneuver or turbulence. They're absolutely designed to flex, but that doesn't mean they're any where near a failure mode. So, no worries there !

Cheers, Mike G.
IIRC the 777 wing was flexed over 20 ft until failure. I've seen the video and when it fails it sounds like a big freakin' gun going off.
